The Baltimore Hebrew Institute (formerly Baltimore Hebrew University) at Towson University is committed to supporting the education of Jewish studies scholars, educators and communal professionals who excel in their chosen fields.
We offer generous scholarships and work with each student to custom tailor a program that meets their goals. In addition, Baltimore Hebrew Institute (BHI) offers engaging non-degree courses and lectures that provide opportunities for adults to deepen their understanding of Jewish and Israeli culture, history, education and community.
The Baltimore Hebrew Institute has three main areas of focus:
We provide outstanding opportunities in advanced studies and degrees in Leadership in Jewish Education and Communal Service and Jewish Studies in a vibrant, cohesive community.
At BHI we provide community enrichment in ways that engage and welcome all who are interested.
BHI also engages adult learners with an array of continuing education course offerings, special programs and community lectures in Judaic studies.
If you are 60 years of age, you can get a discounted tuition rate for up to three undergraduate courses. Other benefits include:
